Yiddish: Don't bang the teakettle at me!

האַק מיר ניט קיין טשײַניק!

Hak mir nit keyn tshaynik!

Don't bang the teakettle at me!

Don't drive me crazy with all your talk.  SOURCE: Kogos, A Dictionary of Yiddish Slang & Idioms. Banging the teakettle means annoying someone by talking (rattling) on and on unnecessarily, or talking nonsense. Philologos writes about this expression in "Kettle's On!" (The Jewish Daily Forward, 2008).
